How To Make LED Lighting For Your Model Train Coaches

Here’s how to make a row of LED lighting for your model train coaches. This is a great addition to any model train coaches you have and will certainly add to the realism and bring them to life…

The coach lighting is made using a small lighting board (with 3 x SMD LED’s), 4 diodes to make a bridge rectifier and an additional capacitor to store some power. The stored power in the capacitor eliminates the annoying switching on and off of lights as your coach travels the track. This is due to connectivity issues between the track and the coach pickup, usually caused by dirty track.
